Free Recycling Bins & Food Scrap Pails for Woodland Residents

Free Recycle Bins

Free recycling bins and food scrap kitchen pails are available to Woodland residents to help make recycling and composting easy and convenient at home, while helping to divert waste from going to landfills. The bins are provided by City of Woodland Environmental Services.

Starting Monday, July 29, residents can pick up the free bins Monday through Friday from 8 am to 3 pm at the City of Woodland Municipal Service Center located at 655 N. Pioneer Avenue. Each single-family household can receive up to two 10-gallon or two 6-gallon recycling bins, or one of each, and a 2-gallon food scrap kitchen pail. Food scrap pails are not available to multi-family households (apartments), as organics services are not available at apartment complexes at this time. Residents must live within city limits to qualify. Bins are first come, first served, and available while supplies last.

Adding indoor recycling bins next to your trash bins makes it easier to sort paper, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and cardboard from your trash. Also, consider adding a recycling bin to your bathroom to catch recyclable items such as shampoo and conditioner bottles, and toilet paper rolls that would otherwise be thrown away.

Residents with organics (brown lid) carts can make collecting and transporting kitchen food scraps easier by placing a food scrap pail on the kitchen counter. Food trimmings, leftovers, expired food, flowers, and food-soiled paper products (paper towels, plates, and cups) are accepted in the organics cart, in addition to yard trimmings, for composting.

For availability or questions about the bins, contact City of Woodland Public Works at (530) 661-5962. To find out more about the City’s recycling and organics recycling program, visit, or connect with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter @EnviroWoodland.
